I am happy to share exciting news from LFPS’ Parent Council! Covid-19 restrictions are relaxing a little bit, allowing us to slowly restart some of the activities we have done in the past. One activity our Parent Council would like to restart is a Holiday Hamper program to support two families in our community for the holiday season.
You will find attached to this email a letter containing more specific information about this Holiday Hamper program. We would like to put together two Holiday Hampers which contain food, clothing, toys and other items. For those who would like to donate items such as clothing and toys, we will be sending out more specific information around ages and sizes early next week.
How to donate? Food, toys and clothing items can be sent in with your child, given to the homeroom teacher and they will be brought to the office. Physical cash donations or gift cards can be sent in with your child too; however, if you would prefer to drop off to an office staff member, you can simply knock on the office window and an office staff member can get this from you. If you are concerned with any donation not making it to the school (many of our LFPS students are young, after all), you can always drop it off directly to an office staff member by knocking on our office window during regular school hours.
This is a truly voluntary activity. Please only donate if you are able to do so. Even small donations of almost any item will help with our goal. Single food items and small cash donations will add up quickly in a school as large as ours.
